Jorginho has been named as UEFA’s men’s footballer of the year after becoming only the 10th player in history to win the Champions League and European Championships in the same season.

The midfielder was instrumental in helping Chelsea lift their second Champions League in May, before helping Italy win the Euros for the second time just two months later.

Chelsea also tasted success in the men’s coach of the year category, with Thomas Tuchel being handed the award after leading the team to victory over Manchester City in the Champions League final in Porto.

Tuchel only took charge at Stamford Bridge in January – after Frank Lampard had led the side into the knockout stage – and oversaw wins against Atletico Madrid, Porto and Real Madrid en route to the final.
